The Unthanks

Go on a symphonic exploration of The Unthanks’ best loved material, with cutting edge chamber orchestra, Army of Generals, conducted by Charles Hazlewood. They will also be performing new work especially devised for this show.

With the orchestral arrangements of their instinctive, self-taught pianist Adrian McNally, the Mercury nominated Tynesiders also delve into material from their forthcoming release, including Hymn for Syria.

First there was a mini orchestral experiment, not-so-quietly played out on the Glastonbury main stage, followed by a highly acclaimed sold out debut symphonic performance with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

Now, The Unthanks perform with Army of Generals, featuring some of the world’s leading players of period instruments.

At the baton is conductor Charles Hazlewood, founder of the world’s first paraorchestra, who has joined forces with the untrained McNally to marry folk music and orchestral scale, enhancing the storytelling and beauty of The Unthanks’ songs and lyrics.
